How can I start the Certificate Manager on Windows XP?

Question:

I know that Windows has a GUI interface to manage digital certificates. I have seen it on another computer but I cannot find a shortcut on my system at home, even though I have admin privileges. How can I start the Certificate Manager on Windows XP?

Answer:

The certificate manager is implemented as a Management Console Snap-in Control (MSC) file. The application can be started as certmgr.msc

Below is a list of other management console Snap-in controls. They are all in \Windows\System32

You can start them from the start menu, by clicking on 'run' and then entering the desired command, e.g. certmgr.msc.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>dir *.msc /b
 certmgr.msc
 ciadv.msc
 compmgmt.msc
 devmgmt.msc
 dfrg.msc
 diskmgmt.msc
 eventvwr.msc
 fsmgmt.msc
 gpedit.msc
 lusrmgr.msc
 ntmsmgr.msc
 ntmsoprq.msc
 perfmon.msc
 rsop.msc
 secpol.msc
 services.msc
 wmimgmt.msc
